    Simply The BEST

    Posted
    billt

    I'm a machinist by trade, so I know manufactured quality when I see it. THIS MACHINE HAS IT! It has unbelievable quality built into it. It is a lifetime piece of equipment. All manufactured from powder coated metal, with a planetary gear system on the head, along with a power takeoff on the front, much like a farm tractor. This thing is the "John Deere" of kitchen mixers. It's no wonder why these things are so popular. They have an all but limitless amount of tasks they can accomplish. Don't waste your time with cheaper kitchen mixers that don't have the power, are a pain to clean, and burn out in a year of normal use. Buy this model and you will have it for life. Then your kids will be able to use it until they die off. This thing is that well made.

    Amazing Quality

    In an era where everything gets more and more cheaply made, it's so nice to find a product that retains the same high-quality standards that have made a name for these solidly built mixers. Even though I was a little intimidated at first, I'm very impressed with how easy it is to use, and the color goes beautifully with my stainless appliances but the coating makes it so easy to keep clean (unlike my stainless appliances). There are a number of attachments (strainer, meat grinder, etc.) available for the mixer; however, I'm going to hold off on investing in any of these until I really feel a need for them. For now, the attachments that came with the unit are more than adequate to get the job done.

    We read reviews and ratings info on this product for three months before we decided to purchase it. Best deal that we found on this particular model before finding it at BEST BUY was at Bed, Bath, and Beyond ($300 AFTER $50 mail in rebate). Just happened to be in Best Buy looking at something else when we noticed they had some small appliances. Bought it for $241, including tax (new, NOT refurbished). It was a sale that day. I cannot believe how awesome that price was and that we found it at Best Buy!!! They rock. Since then we have used it about a dozen times and it is great. It is everything that we expected and more. As long as this mixer continues to function as it has, it will be one of the best purchases that we have ever made for our kitchen. Love it.

    Great addition to a kitchen

    I got this for my girlfriend for xmas. We had talked about getting one because we both really like to cook. It's such a great addition to our gadgets. We have still just only scratched the surface of possibilities for this thing but making bread, pizza dough, and other things has been easy and fun. Not to mention it looks gorgeous. I think we'll enjoy using this for years and years but I would think it's only necessary for hardcore cooking enthusiasts. I can't imagine using it to mix brownie batter from a betty crocker box, just seems like a waste. Also, and I'm sure bestbuy won't be happy about this, there are much better prices on these at other websites. I got it from here because I was getting a lot of things to get 0% financing on the credit card

    Purchased one of these for my wife and had some bad luck. First unit was making a grinding noise and stopped turning about 10 minutes into first use. Exchanged for new one and before using, plugged in and was making an even louder grinding noise. Took the second unit back the same day and asked customer service rep to try in store and a few people came to see what all of the noise was. Could hear the unit in the entire store. Asked for new unit, but wanted to see and hear it run before taking it home. Third unit was good and has been good since. Would give 5 stars if not for the bad two units.

    I’ve always heard the hype and figured it would be great to have a KitchenAid but now that I have one, I am wondering why I didn’t purchase this earlier! From mixing cookie dough to making pizza and bread dough you won’t believe the difference in both quality and time saved! The color is also very nice and has made a nice addition to my kitchen! Just take the plunge and buy it then go home and check out the additional products you can purchase!

    You're reading this review because you're not sure if you should buy it. I admit it does spend a lot of alone time on my counter BUT if I spend just 1 minute of planning, this mixer can be used to make almost anything. An everyday purpose for me is to bake chicken and then shred it in the mixer. Chicken salad sandwiches for days! Also, banana bread is a favorite in my home. Not to mention, you look pretty cool with it mixing it all by itself while you sip wine while adding ingredients. Throw on a vintage apron and you're officially killing it. Life's short, buy the mixer.

    Out of the box, the KitchenAid Metallic Chrome Artisan Stand Mixer is beautiful. I've now used it to make cookies of many types and with the slicer and dicer attachment several main dishes. It works beautifully and I am in love with it. I'm fortunate that, although I have a small kitchen, I have a work table that I keep this appliance on all the time. Therefore, no heavy lifting. If I needed to put it away after every use it would be annoying because it is a solid heavy mixer. It's become something I am using almost every day.

    Does everything we needed but it did struggle a little when we needed it to knead dough for some pasta we were trying to make. we just added more water and it seemed to help. Sid Note: Girl that helped made us jump through hoops to get the price match even made me go to another store to see if they had the product cheaper and then I returned to show her the cheaper price but she then gave me a hard time about the color not being the same and it was more expensive for the color we wanted. So my son finally looked the correct color I wanted on amazon and it was cheaper and she finally gave me the price I originally went there for.

    This is a gift so has not been used yet. However, my wife and I have been married 55 years and have never been without a KitchenAid Mixer. We've worn a couple out because I have made all our bread for the past 25 years. We had a couple of problems within the warranty period and KitchenAid has always responded positively. We expect our grandson's new wife will enjoy hers, just as both our daughters have liked the ones we purchase for them when they got married,

    Buyer Beware! Best Buy sells refurbished Kitchen Aid mixers as new products. Brought a brand new mixer and was disappointed to find that the beater was scratched, a nick had a bad paint job, and there was a wire sticking out of the handle. Returned it and got another mixer. Same problem. This time the bowl was scratched in several places, and ther was a nick under the handle. See photos below.

    Almost Perfect

    I have a Kitchen Aid Mixer in the 4 1/2 quart, with non-tilting head and really wanted one with a tilting head. This has the 5 quart bowl and love the bigger size, love the tilt head. The 3 attachments are smaller then on my 4 1/2 quart mixer. So when I mix some things - not all - I find the attachements do not mix together everything on the sides and I have to scrap them with a spatula. Not a huge deal as now the head tilt's back and makes that process easier. Overall - very sturdy,, looks beautiful and handles long mixes of about 10 -15 minutes with ease.

    Kitchenaid Artisan Mixer-The best!!

    Love it...I waited a long time for one of these and with the Best buy price and coupon deal I got it for a great price. Not to mention the rebate offered by Kitchenaid!! This is so much quieter than I ever imagined. I burned out so many hand mixers in the last 2 years with all that I do. This is perfect for cookies, cakes , buttercreams almost anything. I make Pizza dough in it almost every week, so fast. Love it!! I know they are pricey but if you can keep saving your pennies it will be worth it. I waited 15 yrs till I was able to. By then they had so many colors to choose from. :o)

    The mixer is fantastic. I grew up using one and have wanted one of my own forever. Caught it on sale during the Valentine's Day weekend and finally pulled the trigger. It works just like my mom's, and feels just as sturdy and well made. My only complaints are minor nitpicks. I wish the power cord wasn't black. With any light, pastel colors it seems off-putting. Also, the clear plastic splash guard is terrible and doesn't work for anything more than mixing flour at the first speed. Just don't be an idiot when mixing and turn it up all the way when the bowl is full of powdered sugar.

    It's made making sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies and wheat bread fast and easy. Don't know what we did without it for so long. Our last mixer was an Oster/multi thing that you could switch out the mixer and attach a blender or food processor to it instead. The mixer croaked thanks to husband getting a heavy-duty spatula stuck in between the beaters. Glad he did now, cause love the KitchenAid mixer so much more. No bowl scrapping, at least not without shutting it down and lifting the mixer up... so no more stuck spatulas, not that you'd need to do a lot of scrapping, since it does such a great job mixing everything.

    I picked up this mixer for girlfriend for Christmas last year and she absolutely loved it. It's a timeless kitchen tool that has been around for as long as it has because of how completely and utterly useful it is. She bakes a ton of cupcakes and goodies and this mixer has completely changed her prep time. She LOVES the color too. I didn't think we would get as many compliments as we do our mixer, but by golly we do. This is something I know we'll have for a long time and it was well worth the price. Would recommend to anyone.

    I watched for sales and read reviews before making a decision to buy this mixer. I didn't need anything huge but wanted a mixer with a big enough motor to handle bread dough and divinity. This mixer does both with ease. I find it enjoyable to bake again. The hand mixer I had been using just couldn't handle stiffer mixtures and my arms were not always strong enough to mix by hand. It's a joy to be able to bake what I want not on what my arms would tolerate.

    This is my 2nd Kitchenaid mixer. My first was a hand me down from my MIL that was probably made in the 1960's. It finally died, and I just had to have another one. After researching the models available, I decided on the Artisan. It had the same screw in bowl, lift up head that I was used to and have always found so easy to use. Like my old KA, this new Artisan works great! It is plenty powerful for what I use it for and it looks so beautiful on my kitchen counter. Best Buy had the best price and I've always been happy with their service, plus they offer extended warranties that I usually take advantage of.

    I received this as a Christmas gift. I've always used the little hand mixers so it's great to have a nice mixer. I made heavy dough sour cream sugar cookies. The mixer worked great except I noticed gray streaks through the dough. I Googled this and found that others have had this problem. I thought I washed the bowl well before using it but maybe there was some manufacturing residue left. I haven't used it again yet but am hoping the problem will be gone now that the bowl has been washed several times since. Otherwise I love it and am looking forward to finding things to make using it.

    I purchased this device on Black Friday to help with my cooking prowess and to possibly turn me into a master chef. My brother's wife has this Artisan model and successfully continues to use it for at least 7 years all while serving a very large family (5 and counting). I look forward to getting the same use out of my mixer. While I was hoping to find a matte black model in the store, this bright red model will do just fine. Especially since Best Buy matched the price of an online competitor.
